actually i asked questions. you had stated things as facts and provided
a report that's over one year old to prove it. things change in that
time - linux networking performance could have gotten worse even. i've
read that 2.4pre kernels have worse disk performance.
the reason i asked those questions is that i think it would be interesting
to muck about on that level so i'd actually be interested in you
responding with proof. however you seem more interested in insulting
people then in providing anything of actual value. obviously continuing
this thread with either you or the other redbrick people is pointless
so i'll ask some other people. thanks for reducing my mail load.
so it looks like i'll do my own research (and i'll post back what i find
on the list). if anyone has ideas on how to benchmark these things
- is there an equivilant to bonnie for testing network performance? -
please drop me a note.
